We went after seeing the Mowtown musical. I was hoping for some good Mex and Margaritas. The house Margaritas were very sour. While I hate sweet these were too sour. I asked if they were pre-mixed and was told they were made fresh. They forgot the appetizer. The burrito I had was ok but nothing special. The steak in both... More

This is a casual Mexican restaurant with the best Margarita I have had in a very long time! The decor is fun and funky. The steak quesadilla I had was very good. It is not haute cuisine, if that is what you are looking for.

I'll start by judging what should be a basic staple of any good Mexican restaurant, the chips and salsa. Chips were old and stale and the salsa was watery. So right off the bat I gave them the stink eye. Then my fajitas came, extremely poor presentation and quality. Taco bell does a better job with their preparation, and I'm... More

Thank you for your visit! In our 25 plus years of operation, we always want our guests coming away satisfied with both our food and drink and we truly apologize that you did not have that great experience. We do not use sour mix in our margaritas, opting for fresh lime juice. We hope you will give us another chance... More

Staff were rude, apparently speaking English is a foreign language! Food had no flavour at all, there was so little meat in burrito and after asking for no salad on all of our meals three times! They all came with it! Just dreadful! Better off eating cardboard it would have more flavour

Although the liter of 'rita is half ice, you can't resist them. Steak and chicken fajitas are tasty. The only complaint ... when I leave, my clothes smell like fajitas for the rest of the day. And being on vacation, I always have to pack them away in the suitcase!

The drinks at this restaurant were really good and they have a nice variety of margaritas to choose from- whether you want a pitcher or a glass. The food is blah.

We were there this weekend. Scallops where the size of dimes, not what they should be (they should be at least 1/2 dollar sized). Fajita veggies tasted tike they came from a frozen bag of vegetables.

We had been here several years ago and remembered it being very good. We were very disappointed. Chips and salsa were not good (although were free). Chicken fajitas-came on the typical steaming skillet which kept the chicken and onions hot but the flavor was not good. They were salty. Chicken burrito was also not very good -very dry.
